A community Instagram art project celebrating love, lettering and travel. We encourage you to open your eyes to your surroundings during your commute and travels and explore discover what #thistypelove looks like.
What first started as a Valentine’s Day idea evolved into a worldwide lettering and travel collaboration. We’ve formed a network that allowed individuals to share their feelings on what love looked like in their hometowns or travel destinations, building a library of photographs from cities worldwide. Each person was given a hand-lettered word and had to find a story within their surroundings that resonated what the word meant in relation to love.
It has grown into a community project based on Instagram where other hand-lettering artists began to draw their own word and venture out into their city to take a photograph. The spirit of the project essentially gives the participant a paintbrush to become the artist and put their own spin in their photograph.
